Giuseppe Perrotta of Madison grows enormous tomatoes. The largest tomato weighed in at 1 ¾ pounds. Giuseppe has been gardening since he was 8 years old and has been employed by Coviello Brothers for 33 years.

Born in Polvica di Nola –Naples, Italy he learned from his father how to prune and other gardening techniques. His talents branch out from the garden into the kitchen where he and his family make home made tomato sauce and tomato powder and cook amazing Italian meals.  A jack of all trades, Giuseppe is also a winemaker making both red and white wine and even built his own bocce court in his backyard.
